Mrs. Klein was one of my most fondly remembered teachers. I had her for 2 good years! It was so nice to get reacquainted with her at First Reformed.

Mrs Klein was my third grade teacher (1983-84) and I remember her teaching us multiplication tables and using a rocket chart to show our progress.

Mary was a very positive person and I feel my life is better for having known her. She has been a part of our Thanksgiving tradition for the last several years and will be missed by our family.
